With just under one month to go until the Mubadala Abu Dhabi Open, Beatriz Haddad Maia, a semi-finalist at last year’s tournament, is the latest player confirmed to be playing at the event, which takes place on 3-11 February at the International Tennis Centre, Zayed Sports City.
Brazilian Haddad Maia, who is currently 11th in the WTA rankings, joins Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur as confirmed entrants for the competition, with more big names to be announced over the coming weeks.
Haddad Maia, 27, produced a string of impressive performances during last year’s inaugural Mubadala Abu Dhabi Open, defeating the likes of Marie Bouzkova, Yulia Putintseva and Elena Rybakina en route to the semi-finals, where she was beaten by eventual winner Bencic.
She also reached the semi-finals of last year’s French Open, where once again she was beaten by the eventual winner of the tournament, Iga Swiatek.
